Apologies for yet another thread like this. Thinking about a new pair of headphones. I already have Audio Technica ATH-M40fs, which I quite like but want a step up in both sound quality and build - they're getting quite old and battle-scarred now. I also have some BeyerDynamic DT770 Pros - the build is robust but I never quite got on with the sound, just didn't seem very detailed/complete, almost a bit muddy.
I'm after on-ear, closed back headphones. I'd like to use the same ones for listening to music just for enjoyment (both from my iMac and from turntable/stereo), and for studio monitoring (connecting to a pro-standard audio interface, as well as directly to a guitar amp headphone jack).
Music taste is massively varied, including country and classical, huge production 80s rock, metal, electro, punk - you name it.
Equally eclectic shortlist so far:
Audio Technica ATH-M50 - like the sound but not a big leap from the ATH-M40?
AKG K550 - not had a chance to hear these yet but like the look of them
Bowers & Wilkins P5 - nice build but not sure the sound is up there with this company?
All input gratefully received!
